Why is this important?
Security upgrade for condos
In a condo, a single flue for all the chimneys increases the heat in the condo considerably… Much more than if there was only one chimney giving off heat.
In fact, the adjacent walls and floors of buildings are sometimes very close to the chimney. This can lead to pyrolysis. This occurs when a material ignites at much lower temperatures than expected, but also when the material is exposed to high heat for a long period of time.
In addition, when a duct is very hot, there is a real risk of fire spreading to combustible elements in other adjoining dwellings. Imagine the disaster for the entire building!
In fact, according to Marie-Claude Masson, spokesperson for the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), “firefighters have seen this happen on several occasions in the past when they have been called to fight fires in multi-story residential buildings.”
Therefore, this situation should not be taken lightly. The risks are real and the consequences could be disastrous.
Environmental standards upgrades
For most of us, a fireplace means a quiet evening lounging and watching the thousand and one glows of the dancing flame, listening with delight to the crackling of the logs in the fireplace.
In Quebec, residential wood heating is the main source of fine particles from human activities. On a local level, the contribution of this type of combustion to pollution can be much greater
As of October 1, 2025, in many Quebec municipalities, owners or occupants of buildings will be prohibited from using or allowing the use of any heating appliance or fireplace that allows the use of solid fuel unless it has been certified to the CSA Standard or the EPA Standard and has an emission rate equal to or less than 2.5 g/h of fine particles in the atmosphere.
Aware of the harmful effects of the use of heating appliances and solid fuel fireplaces on air quality, health and the community, Le Groupe Belle Flamme is offering you an exclusive 10% rebate on a new fireplace or stove installation that meets the new standards.
